Headbands!

It’s been characters for the last couple of weeks, which are my thing, but not my only thing, so I figured it was about time to share something new.

I’m particularly proud of that last flower. I like the pinwheel style!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Bowser!

Bowser!

I don’t have very much to say about this guy, other than the fact that I think he may be the most detailed thing I’ve ever made.

 

And that I’m super disappointed that it was a dreary day when I took these pictures, so the natural light wasn’t that good. But they had to be delivered the next day, so I had no choice. Ho hum.

Still came out great.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Custom Characters: Nakamoto

A little while ago, I asserted that I could crochet anything, (not cocky at all, right?) and so I was really put to the test. I play D&D with a group of people, and one of them has a character that looks like this:

I did a giveaway on the discord we’re all on, saying I would crochet the character of the winner, and guess who won? The most complicated concept! Looking at this I had no idea how I was going to pull it off..
But here’s the result:

To make this guy, I had to re-work my entire process for crochet. Usually I crochet in round, starting from the beginning, but Nakamoto’s face wouldn’t look right made that way, so instead I had to craft each piece individually and sew & stuff them all together.

 

Overall, it was a great experience to figure out how to do something new. And although there are certain things about it I don’t love, he was a lot of fun to make and I’m overall pleased with how he came out. This has been one of my most difficult challenges in ages.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Little Cacti!

One of Husband’s grandmas loves cacti. I wanted to give her one as a gift, but she lives several states away, and I was worried a live cactus wouldn’t survive shipping. Solution:

Hopefully they’ll enjoy a nice little home on her windowsill. The great thing about these is that you can make it into a pincushion and it wouldn’t look odd with those little yellow pins sticking out!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Little Pouches!

Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to show all the stuff people got from me! In this case, I made little pouches for two of my husband’s grandmas.

The pouches are both made the same way, but I wanted to give them something more personalized to them. So I put a flower on one and a kitty of the other.

They even have zippers! I didn’t intend it this way, but they actually ended up the perfect size for the zippers sold at the store. So I didn’t get that weird zipper pocket thing!

After seeing how well they came out, I think I may make these in bulk for Fanaticon. Maybe pokemon-themed! Only time will tell.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

 

More TMNT

I feel as though Turtles have been the big theme lately. I made these guys after an online friend saw my first order of turtles. Thanks to my wonderful Mother-In-Law and her sweet phone, I was able to take nicer pictures!

 

He also wanted Shredder and Splinter from the show. I was particularly pleased with how Shredder came out, as it seemed like such a hard task at first! I paid particular attention to the helmet, and found perfect colors to match.

I’m very pleased to say he loved it. His son got the order for Christmas!

Happy Friday, Everyone!
